    We might as well root for McCoy at this point.

    This is a complete an utter disaster. I hope the season ticket holders speak with their money about a pathetic search for a head coach.

    If you buy the Denver media reports he will be. He apparently is catching a flight to Miami.

    We don't have enough info to know how qualified these guys are, but I sure was looking forward to the idea of getting Philbin so we could raid the Packers of their staff, offensive system, and QB.

    I even started watching the games Flynn played in to do a little scouting.

    This will either be a great day in Dolphins history(McCoy) or another disappointing day(Bowles).

    I was more or less split between Philbin and McCoy.

    Now I'm REALLY rooting for McCoy

    I wonder if they are naming Bowles the other finalist in a bid to convince him to stay on as DC?

    Just how good was Denver's offense. Especially without Tebow...they kinda stunk. On the other hand, we get an offensive minded coach. I woulda loved Zimmer, but because of politics no job wants to hire a guy who wont kiss their a$$. Sad

    he's presidential! plus he's like 38 - so hopefully he has a lot of energy for the job, puts together a great staff, and becomes "the next don shula!" (and coaches here for the next 20 years)

    I can see that scene at JFK now; McCoy starting to walk down the terminal, boarding a plane for Denver, Ross sprinting after him...

    Ross: Wait! Don't go! Don't get on that plane, Mike.
    McCoy: I'm not going to just sit around here while you make up your mind.
    Ross: I have made up my mind. I want you to come to Miami with me.
    McCoy: You- you mean it? What about those other guys?
    Ross: I don't care about those other guys. It didn't mean anything. I want you.
    McCoy: Oh, Mr. Ross. You've made me so happy.

    A great day in dolphins history really. It could be in the end but way too early to say it will be a great day in our history but hell many thought Parcells was a great day in dolphin history

    Don't need to predict the future - just look in the past and it will be more of the same.

    Just like when we passed on Mike Tomlin, Ted Thompson and every other person that would have made a difference to this franchise. We seem to have a knack for picking the Dave Wannstedt's of the group.

    I'm rooting for Philbin to get the Bucs job now.

    Yes, all two games. I never said I was thrilled with the idea, but I'm sure that would be the next step if Philbin is hired.

    Why in the world does our front office have to leak EVERYTHING to the media? What good does it do to tell everyone when a candidate has been eliminated from the search. I thought it was reckless and unprofessional to announce it was down to the final 3....and now this is even worse. Just make the damn decision and announce the coach. Ive never seen anything like this before. Ross could use a lesson in human resources.

    I could be wrong here, but my gut feeling has always been that Bowles has been getting additional interviews and opportunities so that Ireland and Ross can turn around and offer him the DC job while saving face with him.

    Here's how i've always seen this playing out:

    McCoy/Philbin/Bowles all got 2nd interviews.
    I truly believe that it was always McCoy/Philbin
    We give Bowles a 2nd interview anyway so that a. he isn't interviewing elsewhere b. we can say 'you were so close, but unfortunately we gave it to Mike. How would you like to stick around as Assistant/DC?

    This way, we keep the defense happy by ensuring continuity. And we get the coach we've coveted since Fisher bailed

    I was thinking that it could be a great day or a bad one, but we're just going to have to wait and see. :)



    I thought it was obvious by now that our front office is not leaking everything. Quite the opposite, it seems to me that outside of the Harbaugh affair, they have been pretty good about keeping a lid on things. All we've heard since the beginning of the season has been misinformation. Remember all the reports about Sparano's imminent dismissal? And then after everything got quiet for a few weeks it came out of the blue.

    Report: Mike Zimmer could be named Dolphins head coach by tonight. Yeah, that was a real accurate 'leak' that someone flung against the wall.

    Amusingly, I think it's this Parcellian penchant for misinformation and secrecy that is causing a lot of this team's public relations problems. They need to just come out and say what they're going to do, and then do it, and if media guys are making stuff up then they need to come out and say "Hey, this report is made up."

    Yeah I agree. Of these three I prefer McCoy but if this were my decision I would have interviewed the DC from the Giants Perry Fewell.

    He is the guy I would have picked, and I would DEFINITELY pick a Defensive guy to be the Head Coach. :)

    If philbin was eliminated, it was because of his recent loss. Seriously the man may not be ready now or ever.

    He contacted sources with the Packers who say that Philbin hasn't been contacted or told he was out. This means he is still in the race.

    Also, reports have it McCoy flew back to Denver last night so he will not be on the plane with Ross!

    Please Mr. Ross, pick Philbin!

    A Bowles hire would suggest to me that Ross is installing a stop-gap with plans to go fishing again in the next offseason, with hopes that a Cowher or Gruden might be had then. It would make more sense to discard Bowles after 1 year due to his association with the existing regime and the organizational knowledge of him than to get rid of McCoy or Philbin that quickly.

    bowles might surprise us however, if they don't win quickly and often nobody is going to attend any games at all.

    I'd prefer McCoy myself if these are the two choices left. I'm hoping he'll bring a new direction to this team...which is so desperately needed at this point.
